This letter to the editor is in response to Mr. Berkheimer’s Guest View printed in the August 10th Appeal Democrat.  

Mr. Berkheimer rightly claims that not all Founders were “deeply” Christian. Some were Deists, some atheists, some were liberal Protestants. He then leaps to the questionable conclusion that America’s founding as a Christian nation is a myth. Mr. Berkheimer ignores the point that the Founders as well as the general population had great respect for the Bible and lived out their daily morality by the Bible’s precepts.
